So my sock virginity has finally been broken! I offically finished these off on Friday – but it took me a couple of days to get this post together 🙂
So the pattern was from my Art of Knitting magazine. It was designed as a beginners sock pattern on straight needles. That was a fairly good classification I think. Don’t get me wrong, there were lots I needed to google. But it wasn’t a huge learning curve and the instructions (for the most part) were pretty easy to follow.
Apart from the feet (which were a little big), the rest of the sock fits really well. The leg portion seems to stay up without any issues and is the length I wanted it to be.
I wore them to work on Friday with my black ugg boots. It was cold outside and I really wanted an excuse to wear them!! This is my favourite thing about knitting – being able to actually wear stuff you have made (I’m wearing my original green scraf a lot at the moment!).
Long term though the plan is for these to be indoor socks. I figured they would be really comfy around the house during my maternity leave with bubs! 🙂
Thanks so much for all the support and advice during this knit – seriously could not have got to this point without you all!
Next stop is to cast on a tank top for bubs. Will update you with that one during the week!
